A few days have gone by since the famous Nancy Pelosi Hair Salon visit. The incident that has gotten the President of the United States tweeting about Speaker Pelosi’s hair. The incident that has gotten the Speaker of the House to insist she was “set-up” by a hair salon owner. The incident that has gotten people to show up at Nancy Pelosi’s home, and hang blow dryers and curlers on her tree. What caused the controversy was not the simple act of a hairdo, it’s the hypocrisy the hairdo implies for the American public.
Erica Kious, the salon owner and single mother of two, was accused by Nancy Pelosi of setting her up for a political scandal. The House Speaker said she only took responsibility for falling for that “set-up.” Due to Pelosi’s attacks on the business owner, she has been forced to shut down the salon and relocate.
During a press conference, Pelosi stated: “So I take responsibility for falling for a setup. And that’s all I’m going to say on that.”
She goes on to say, “I think that this salon owes me an apology, for setting me up. I take responsibility for trusting the word of the neighborhood salon that I’ve been to over the years many times, and when they said, ‘We’re able to accommodate people one person at a time.’ I trusted that.”
A friend of Kious set up a GoFundMe page, which at the time of writing this, has accumulated $163,077 out of a $300k goal. The page states “Erica Kious, a single mother of two, and owner of eSalon, where House Speaker Pelosi got her hair done Monday, is now being forced to shut down and relocate her business and family due to outrage and threats her family is receiving.”
It then continues to say:
A maskless House Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited eSalon on Monday afternoon for a wash and blow-out, despite local ordinances keeping salons closed amid the coronavirus pandemic. San Francisco’s coronavirus guidelines allowed hair salons to reopen their businesses for outdoor services starting Tuesday, with clients seen one at a time. Haircuts are permitted, according to the guidance, but shampooing and hair coloring services are not.
I have been friends with Erica and her family for roughly 20 years and wanted to help. Thank you for taking the time to do the same. She is overwhelmed by the flood of support and is grateful for those who are willing to speak out and stand up along her side.
At the conclusion of this fundraiser, ALL donations will go directly to Erica to pay off any debts from the business that she is forced to shut down, expenses to relocate and reopen in a new location.
After the surveillance video went viral on social media and on mainstream news, private citizen Erica Kious found herself of a hate storm by progressives and the left. In the video, Pelosi was visiting the salon for a wash an blow out – in violation of local ordinances which kept the indoors of salons closed. In the video, Pelosi also goes mask less, and Kious found that “disrespectful” given how vocal Pelosi has been about the mask mandate and how her business and her employees have been suffering due to restriction Pelosi has adamantly supported.
